Dance + Develop
We're so excited about our upcoming season at Saltmarsh Dance studio in San Marco
located at 1620 Naldo Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32207.
New features of our studio: The most space we've ever had in the history of Saltmarsh Dance and an aerial clearance and lighting even circus stars can appreciate. We also have space for dressing rooms, office, and a waiting room for parents and parking.
We focus on building up our students from setting a solid foundation to polishing advanced techniques with master choreography and professional dance development coaching. Our teachers are actively engaged with students during class time and offer additional instruction sessions for our more advanced students who want to work on specific elements for new opportunities. We currently offer class options for all ages in ballet, contemporary, and often bring in special guest artists and performance opportunities throughout the year. Registration is open.
Classes start up again in the fall week of August 21st.
